The Vikings are among the frontrunners to sign former Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins. Both are completely unrestricted free agents and both are set to make about $30 million next year.

According to Tom Pelissero of The NFL Network, the Minnesota Vikings have already placed a call to the 39-year-old.

Players can not be contacted directly until Wednesday, when the free agency signing period actually begins. One of the biggest names if that of quarterback Drew Brees, who has said he wants to return to the New Orleans Saints, but many others want him too. Brees and the Saints have until Wednesday at 3 p.m. ET to work out a new deal, or his contract will be voided.

But Ronaldo proved the difference again, the 33-year-old taking his tally for the season to 35 goals in 37 appearances. Former Wigan defender Ivan Ramis headed in an equaliser for Eibar and it looked like they would secure a point.

There's always the possibility that one of the three holdovers, Case Keenum, Teddy Bridgewater or Sam Bradford, might remain in the mix. Of course Brees is the better player, but Cousins is younger and still has room to grow.

Strief thanked the organization for taking a chance on him, adding that he was humbled to play alongside quarterback Drew Brees.

The Saints offensive tackle on Monday announced his retirement from the National Football League after spending his entire 12-season career in New Orleans.

Nigeria is Africa's biggest oil producer whose security forces are battling Boko Haram Islamist militants in the northeast. And in the months since, the US has repeatedly praised Chad's efforts to improve its compliance with USA requirements.

Brees re-structured his contract to cut a cap hit in 2016 almost in half, pro-rating a signing bonus of $18 million over three years, starting in 2018. If New Orleans can't come to an agreement with Brees by Wednesday, $18 million in dead money would count toward the team's salary cap for 2018.

Florio also made a surprise appearance on KFAN Sports Radio on Friday and offered more insight, stating he believes Brees and the Saints are having a "miscommunication" and that it's becoming realistic that Brees could become available.
